The call for workshops is now closed. Please see the list of accepted workshops for instructions on submitting a paper to a workshop.

Following the tradition of previous conferences, EDOC 2018 plans to host a number of workshops alongside the main conference. The workshops will provide a collaborative forum for a group of typically 15 to 30 participants to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community. They are intended as a forum for lively discussion of innovative ideas, recent progress, or practical approaches and applications. Each workshop should provide a balanced distribution of its time for both presentation of papers and discussions. We encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly interactive workshops focusing on areas related to enterprise computing in general. Both research-oriented and applied topics are welcome.

Workshop Proposal Guidelines

Your proposal document must contain the following information:

  2. Proposed duration of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
  3. Name, affiliation, and e-mail addresses of the workshop chairs
  4. Extended abstract (about 500-1000 words) of the workshop, explaining importance of the workshop topics, fit within and complementarity with the EDOC conference, intended audience, workshop program elements (e.g. introduction, paper presentations, keynote speakers, discussions, working sessions), and other relevant issues that are not adequately covered in the preliminary Call for Papers
  5. Preliminary Call for Papers, including a description of the workshop background and goals, a list of topics and a list of program committee members (not all Program Committee members have to be confirmed at the workshop proposal submission time, although it is certainly beneficial to have some preliminary acceptances)
  6. Information about distribution channels (e.g., mailing lists, web-site, direct mailings to past presenters, other direct mailings) that will be used for advertising the workshop
  7. History of the workshop (if it was held before) with statistics (i.e., how many papers were presented, how many papers were submitted, how many people attended)
  8. Short biographies (about 200 words each) of all workshop chairs, including information about past experience in organizing/chairing conferences and workshops.


Please ensure that you adhere to the above workshop proposal guidelines providing all requested information using at most six pages.

The proposal must be submitted as a PDF file to the workshop committee chairs.


Workshop papers will be published in a second volume of the EDOC 2018 conference proceedings. Details will be communicated to the organizers of accepted workshops at the time of notification.
